Great all-all-you-can-eat salad bar, although on this trip the spinach was wilted.

From Our Editors

Today, Victoria Station & Vic's Boathouse in Salem is unique?but it wasn't always. In 1970, inspired by the landmark Victoria Station in London, three Cornell Hotel School graduates created a restaurant with English touches, such as a bright-red phone booth and authentic train cars they'd turned into dining cars. They opened up in San Francisco, and the business grew. By the 1980s, there were almost 100 Victoria Station locations in the United States and around the world. Johnny Cash did a stint as their spokesman.

But the company filed for bankruptcy in 1986. Its rise and fall is documented in Tom Blake's book Prime Rib and Boxcars: Whatever Happened to Victoria Station? The waterfront Salem location was 99th and final location to open, and it's the only one left.

Today, the restaurant has gone in its own direction, drawing inspiration from both the restaurant's past and its current surroundings. Classic New England cuisine and old steak-house favorites mingle comfortably on the menu. The chefs coat haddock in a seasoned cracker crust to bake and serve with chardonnay and fresh lemon juice, and the slow-roasted prime rib that made the original restaurant famous still has a place on the menu. Diners can also order up house favorites, such as lobster mac 'n' cheese with five-cheese b?chamel sauce and cornbread shallot crumbs, or they can opt for an Angus burger. The menu has earned the restaurant scores of accolades, including Best Waterfront Dining, Northshore Magazine, 2011?2013.

Vic's Boathouse, a bar and lounge at Victoria Station, opened in 2010 and has already earned the honor of Best Bar, North of 2012, according to Boston Magazine. Inside, diners can request a local or craft brew, order a martini, or pick from the pub menu. The bar hosts nightly live entertainment, including open-mic sessions, live musicians, and karaoke, which makes for lively evenings without the expense of hiring a DJ for family dinner.
